How can you view the certificate of a site with a certificate error without visiting it?

Q: How can you view the certificate of a site with a certificate error without visiting it?

In Internet Explorer, when I get a certificate error, if I continue to the web site, I can then view the certificate to see what was wrong. However, obviously it would be preferable* to see the certificate
before I make the decision to go to the site. Is this possible? I'm sure I could use another browser that does this, or maybe use the F12 developer tools, or write a program. But I'm looking
for a normal-user way to do it. I think it used to be possible in Internet Explorer, but this might have been 6.x or even earlier. Or even
way earlier. Yep. I'm that old. I believe this feature is not in Edge either...unless I'm just missing it. But I'm using ie11 right now.
*understatement level is set to "high".

Preferred Solution: How can you view the certificate of a site with a certificate error without visiting it?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


so whats up with this error message ??
Revocation information for the security certificate for this site is not available. Do you want to proceed? [Yes] [No] [View certificate]

i know it can be unchecked in security option under advanced. but is that really safe to do ???

I am trying to resolve an issue where multiple client computers in the organisation are using an internally deployed Root CA certificate (before my time and no longer required) to sign the end entity certificate for external websites, google.co.uk
for example. All SSL sites appeared to be affected by this.

However this is not the case as sub domains of sites with issues show the correct cert chain, the below is for mail.google.com

Removing or untrusting this root ca cert breaks access to these sites.

I have reset root certs in various ways, removed machines from the domain, applied no GPOs, manually updated CRL and pulled down updated certs with rootsupd.exe.
It always attempts to use this rouge CA cert to sign the websites cert.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

I am trying to install CA root certificate on Windows 7, IE 9.
Encounter error: "Untrusted Certificate".  "This certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certificate authority."
I have tried to install the certificate to Trusted Root Certificate Authorities->local computer and import was successful. BUT on IE->Internet Options->Certificate->Trusted Root Certificate Authorities, I am unable to find this root CA on
the list.
On mmc->Certificates->Trusted Root Certificate Authorities->certificates, I am able to view this root CA.
I then restarted the IE and view the ssl site again but failed too, "Untrusted Certificate".
Anyone, any idea ?

A:Unable to Install Root CA Certificate - Certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certificate authority.

May the following workarounds work for you:
Workaround 1:
Modify the Windows settings to allow the Update Root Certificate feature to update the root certificates automatically. For details, see the following Microsoft TechNet article:
Certificate Support and Resulting Internet Communication in Windows Server 2008
Workaround 2?
If the Update Root Certificate feature cannot automatically update the root certificates, you may contact the website vender to see if there is a hotfix can fix the issue.

I have some Windows 7 systems which have not run Windows Updates for many years, and cannot due to regulatory reasons.   We rely upon Windows to automatically update the Trusted Root Certificate store whenever we browse to a web site/web service
that uses a certificate the system doesn't recognize. 
Sometime recently, the Trusted Root Certificate Store no longer updates automatically.  The Windows Event Log shows an error stating that the certificates cannot be downloaded from:
http : // ctldl.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/authrootstl.cab
If we browse to this location manually, the cab file contains an invalid Microsoft certificate. 

This was also an issue in Sept 2018.  At that time, the certificate had expired, and Microsoft eventually updated the certificate to resolve the issue.   This time, the certificate does not appear to have expired.  Why is the certificate
invalid this time, and can Microsoft fix it again?

First, I have reviewed the other posts with similar questions and noted that I can install the certificate into root certificates and most likely this problem will go away, some specifics:

1) When a client reported this error using a pop.secureserver.net on an outlook 2003 client, I just figured it was godaddy or the REALLY old Outlook client, but nonetheless, I went in to troubleshoot it and was convinced it was godaddy, but when I tried
to start my Outlook 2016 client on my Windows 10 computer on their network, I got the same error.  Two notes are important: 1) I use godaddy as well and 2) I used the same computer at a different client just yesterday without a single error message.
2) They use POP 995 w/ SSL & SMTP 465 w/ SSL to pop.secureserver.net & smtpout.secureserver.net repsectively
3) I called the company that manages their firewall and was told that everything was fine, but was sent a certificate from the firewall that might fix the problem.

Really confusing one here. Since this weekend (16/17 July) we have started getting Certificate errors on some sites and applications. This seems to be due to the structure of the URL compared to the "advertised" name IIS is presenting. I'll try
to explain.
I have a site, Website. This is in my domain, domain.com. Therefore the FQDN is website.domain.com. IIS is running and I can access this site through FQDN,NetBIOS or IP address. Good news.
I create a certificate for the server using the FQDN as the subject, I add the Netbios and IP addresses in the Subject Alternate Names and Bind this to port 443 on the server.
I browse to https://website and all is good. I browse to https://website.domain.com I get a certificate error. Checking the certificate, everything is fine, no errors, chain is trusted. open Chrome and do the same, I get that the certificate website.domain.com
is being presented by Website and may not be the site I want.
Using either URL has never been a problem until this weekend, but it seems that IE/Windows/IIS is not liking any URL that is not EXACTLY what IIS is presenting. so my questions are:-
Is anyone else finding this?
Can we issue a certificate that covers all possible DNS resolutions for a site?
How do I control WHAT IIS advertises itself as?
SO far this has affected two major systems on our network and I can see that more will arise, so any help would be appreciated.

Having some fun with a windows 7 setup of DirectAccess, have it configured to use ECC certificates on the client for the IPSec authentication, which was working brilliantly, we even have it loaded up behind a Citrix Netscaler to do SSL offloading of the
HTTPS tunnel encryption. But when trying to get Client Preauthentication working, we hit a snag, it seems that the NetScalers dont support ECC certificates, which is a pain, but something we thought we could work around by using an RSA certificate on the client
to performed the pre-authentication (as shown here https://directaccess.richardhicks.com/2016/05/10/directaccess-ip-https-preauthentication-using-citrix-netscaler/).
So we have three CA's, CA1/2 issue RSA certs and CA3 is setup to do the ECC ones, so nice separation of the chains.
So we have our Cert chain for RSA loaded into the load balancer and a new cert issued to the client from CA1... But, every time the client connects to the server (LB) we see the handshake taking place, the server sends a list of its DNs (CA1/2) (https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/kaushal/2015/05/27/client-certificate-authentication/)
to the client, but then the client looks in its store, picks out the ECC certificate (issued from CA3) and fails to authenticate saying no suitable certificate can be found, its like its not even looking at the RSA one at all.
So, thinking something was wrong with the way the LB was asking for client authentication, I tried deleting the ECC cert a... Read more

We have a problem where we encrypted files using EFS, however we can't access or decrypt these files now.

We have the certificate in the certmgr.msc but we do see that the key is missing.

I have reproduced this on another computer and was able to run certutil -repairstore -user MY "Serial Number" which worked in repairing the store and files was decryptable again.

However on the machine that encrypted the files that we need to access this is not the case as there is a popup asking for your Smart Card.

We are not using Smart Cards at all, and have had a look at the following article regarding this issue, but the hotfix didn't work: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2955631

I have software that can remove the encryption but will require the .pfx file, which can't be exported as the certstore doesn't show that it still has this.

It is a self signed certificate generated by Windows, so I can't request a new one using the CA.

Thanks for your help in advance.

I'm feeling really dumb but I can't figure out how to view the details of an SSL certificate in IE11.

On previous version of IE you would simply click on the padlock that appears in the address bar and then select view certificate. On IE11 the padlock does not appear. The particular problem I'm having is that I'm trying to diagnose why Windows 8.1 with IE11
is rejecting a perfectly valid cert. All I get is a screen telling me that there is a problem with the certificate (it says that the cert is revoked) but no details and I can't figure out how to view the details.

I have Windows Vista Home Edition and use Internet Explorer 9. I stopped using my PC for a couple of months, as I had no internet access.

In desperation, I installed Reg Cure Pro to see if it would fix the problem, but it did not.

I am trying to download the free trial version of PGP's security software.

When I click "Accept" after the software license agreement, it tries to redirect me to a secure site (to enter personal information and initiate the download I presume). But I never get there because apparently that site has an invalid security certificate.

I tried switching browsers.
Results are the same whether I use IE or Firefox.

I checked the time on my computer's clock.
The time on my computer clock is correct.

Can anyone think of anything else I might try?

Can someone else try to go to the download page to try to duplicate the results?

Here is the direct link:

If you prefer to browse to it yourself, go to the main PGP page (pgp.com). Click on the link at the bottom of the screen that says "Evaluation Software"
Then click on the third choice:

If anyone else can duplicate the security certificate error, then I'll know it's their problem, not mine.

A few days ago my IE7 disappeared from the desk top and launch bar. I reinstalled it, then found that the secure site I access regularly via an installed certificate, did not respond with the usual pop up certificate confirmation window, and eventually I would receive a "Page not available" message. I reinstalled the cert, and cleared the SSL state, all to no avail. I can still access the site from one of my other PCs, so the problem is machine specific. No special settings were required when I first installed the certificate. Any ideas on what the problem may be would be welcome, as it is driving me nuts!!

original problem was posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic454346.htmlIt couldnt be solved so I was directed this way.This is the gist of the situation:I'm trying to deposit money on a pokersite and im having errors on my PC. I can access the deposit page from my wireless laptop and even my iphone (wifi mode), but i prefer to do my banking on my PC.Here's the detailed descriptionI just joined a new Online Poker site (lockpoker.eu) and installed their poker program on my computer. I signed up an account and tried out the program (using play money) and everything worked well so I decided to deposit some Real Cash into it. Thats when I ran into the problem. When i would try to click on the deposit link inside the program I would get a certificate error on the deposit page. i tried multiple times and always get the same results. I figured theres something wrong with the deposit link within the program. Luckily there was another option. I can just go directly to the LockPoker.eu website and deposit from there (cashier.lockpoker.eu). So i log into the site successfully and discover the deposit link. I click on the link and still get the certificate errors. I tried using three different browsers (Firefox, Safari, Chrome) and i basically got the same certificate errors. I'll copy and paste the errors from my original post here. I also took screen shots of the errors that i have attached.From Mozilla---------------------------------------This Connection ...

A:Possible phishing problem. Having certificate problems when browsing on a particular site.


Late last night, i dont know why, but i checked to see if there were any updates on my Comodo Firewall. and sure enough there was. so i updated it and it updated itself super quick (like it was downloaded and ready to install a single 1KB file or something cause it was quick) and it asked me to restart. so I restarted. I felt that the update was so quick that i went back and clicked update again. and there was yet another update. this time it took a little longer. and i restarted it again.

it was late so i set a virus scan and went to bed.

when i got up this morning, i saw that i had no viruses (as expected) and went to check my posts. i decided to click on http://www.realtimegaming.com/ and i am now able to access it. I went on cashier.lockpoker.eu and clicked on the deposit link and im able to access it now. i went to my poker program logged on and clicked on the deposit link and im able to access it now.

my firewall was COMODO Internet Security (Version: 5.5.64714.1383) and now its COMODO Internet Security (Version: 5.10.228257.2253)

Does this mean i was being phished by my firewall all this time? should i be worried? ive been online banking for quite sometime?

Something keeps redircting Google Chrome. I keep getting this message.

The site's security certificate is signed using a weak signature algorithm!

A:The site's security certificate is signed using a weak signature algorithm!

I am not positive, but this could be because of malware.
My recommendation would be to wait for an experienced person to answer your question.

But in the meantime, download Malwarebytes and scan using the Quick scan.


Post back the log when you are done, please.

I apologize if this isn't the right forum, but I did not see one that is specifically for Microsoft Edge.

We have an internal Flash application at work that utilizes a self-signed certificate for HTTPS. When attempting to load the page hosting the application, only the background will load. Other than the initial warning regarding the self-signed certificate,
there are no errors logged in the browser or the application's backend. The page would load successfully prior to the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

One workaround to get the application to load is to install the self-signed certificate in Internet Explorer. After that, it works fine. My question is: does the version of Microsoft Edge that comes with the Anniversary Update have a new security
feature that prevents it from loading Flash content when a self-signed certificate is involved? If not, does anyone have any ideas as to why the content will not load unless the certificate is installed?

Edge version 
Microsoft Edge 38.14393.0.0
Microsoft EdgeHTML 14.14393

I've not had this happen to me before. On visiting "RosariansCorner" I receive the attached message.

I can get to the site through the cached sites in Google but can't navigate the actual site.

Have you come across this before. Other sites are fine. I'm using Firefox and Windows XP.

Thank you.
